effect next year. $55 billion in defense alone. a study funded by the aerospace industry association finds more than 2 million jobs will be lost by the end of next year, more than a million in defense and nearly as many nondefense-related jobs. only 16% of these are federal workers. the majority of the pink slips will be in the private sector. now voters in key battleground states are going to feel most of this, ali. in florida where you are, that same study found about 80,000 total jobs lost. in virginia where you're headed next week, more than 207,000 jobs lost. of course it's home to numerous defense contractors and military bases, including the pentagon. then take a look at california and texas. not swing states but both, both of those states would be hit hard if the sequester happens. but ali, spending cuts are just part of the fiscal cliff. there are also monster tax increases that will take effect and as the bush tax cuts expire, the amt tax expires, i could go on and on, payroll tax holiday, nonpartisan tax policy center say american households face on average 3500 in higher

has a little longer timeframe but payroll cuts are exacerbating the problem. and defense spending has to be on the table, too. >> you gleamed all the critical -- >> if you're going to have an agreement, republicans are going to have to give on tax revenues and democrats are going to have to give on entitlement spending. it's as simple as that. >> it is simple. >> it is real simple. i have repeatedly in the past been in favor of bull simpson. it would have been nice to do it. if we kept kicking the can down the road, the debt has grown bigger and bigger. the longer this goes on, the worse the problem gets. and the more the debt goes up. >> you see congress taking a trench on either side -- a lot of people disliked grover's pledge because they feel like it makes everyone feel more entrenched. you talk about independent spirit. a lot of times independent spirits don't necessarily come to the table in conversation. >> you need people who will serve in elected positions and understand their responsibility to govern. they need to make decisions. we have serious fiscal problems, serious econ
to the red cross, we should say that that packers' defense you're talking about, charles woodson, gave a big donation, $100,000, that's great. a great example to set for the rest of the country. redcross.org if you're thinking. brianna, quickly, i want to ask about the recent polling that's come out in wisconsin, and while i ask you about the polling, i also want to remind our viewers that wisconsin is the home state of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for p
, vice president, and you have -- secretary of defense, secretary of state, here they are, sitting around, watching this raid happen. did you ever ask the president about that? what was actually happening in that moment when this picture was snapped? >> i did. you know, what they were watching was an overhead video feed from a sentinel drone. and they saw one of the black hawk helicopters set down suddenly inside the compound. they couldn't tell whether it had crashed or landed. but they knew that the mission didn't call for that to happen. the helicopters were supposed to rope in the s.e.a.l. teams, then move outside of the compound and land outside its walls. so suddenly this helicopter went down right in the middle of the compound. they didn't know yet exactly what it happened. they knew this was not supposed to happen. >> i have so many more questions for you. but i have to leave it there. mark bowden, let's let everyone know, the book is called "the finish: the killing of osama bin laden." appreciated it this morning. thank you. >> thank you, brooke. >>> it's a story we first brought
. but i want to say something in defense of the hospital. i had a loved one in nyu hospital and that is an accident hospital. the staff everybody was wonderful. hospital. >> none of it is about the level of care. i know that the staff there are doing a great job. but i'm talking about the infra structure. >> they are set up the reason why the oil is in the basement new york has a history of black outs but it happens to the con-ed system and those were put there so that the hospitals when we have the black outs and the brown outs that they keep going there and they have. no one has experienced this and i want to point out that you say it it unprecedented. when he says it is unprecedented it is going to set the precedent. this is what we are going to see from here on out. that is what is changed here. this is not going to be a freak stint what happened here in new york and new jersey this week. we have been seeing crazy weather for the last few years. >> hold this thought. i want to get to this. for now, let me think allen. i appreciate you coming on. i think you know i was go
find out the secretary of defense decided not to take any action. said the other day this is as bad as watergate but i said nobody died in watergate. this is massive coverup or not acceptable service to american people. >> dana: it doesn't matter election, they will continue to be on this to find out information. a hearing is scheduled for november 15. one of your old pals, i don't know. i guess i can't call her an old pal. she said this is basically a made up story. >> greg: the definition of a made-up story to eleanor cliff, won the fnc beater two reading theth bitter column by maureen dowd. hood ornament of the main stream media. refusing to acknowledge a real scandal. how is she an intel expert? if she was special agent cliff, somehow related to somebody killed, after calls for help was ignored she would feel differently. if you want the story to go away, just answer the questions. >> bob: mccain said it was worst scandal in his lifetime. the worst scandal is the war he suffered through for eight years of the prison of war. >> kimberly: that is not what he is saying. >> bob: he
security advisor was. where the secretary of defense was. where the chairman chairman of the joint chiefs w yet seven weeks after americans were murdered in benghazi we can't get the truth of this administration. the answer today to the suction i had been given by a united states senator there may be weems from the security advisors office. there answer was very narrowly worded. >> sean: i can put it up on the screen what it specifically says. neither the president nor anyone in the white house indeed any request for assistance in benghazi during the attack? >> right. first of all the people in benghazi asking for assistance. what does that mean? does it mean it was cut off somewhere? the president did not know that they were asking for assistance? it's very clear if you look at the reports we now have that the seals, former seals who stayed to defend the ambassador and consulate, they fought until they were killed at 4:00 in the morning there was going to be c-130 gunship. they were using a laser designater to target mortars and they thought there was going to be an airplane overhead to ta
on for seven hours, we now know that secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. where is the leadership. it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks and ej dionne in the final nine days? >> i think this has been the worst campaign i've ever covered. i think they're both ending on the same note they started. obama is doing a negative campaign, he's got an ad out which is called "remember" which is about romney. the plutocrat, the flip-flopper on the stump. romney is trying to appeal to ha moderates, to women, which is a bipartisan ad which is saying -- you know, i don't care if it's republican idea or a democratic idea, i'm going to be for that.b and you know so he has shape-shifted. that's not who he is, that's not who his policies are. i regard this as a campaign that has not addressed any of the fundamental issues and they have finished as badly as they started. >> i disagree. i think the election is a fundamental choice and i think the trust issue links closely with the economic issue. romney has run as a product. you
't help somebody. >> i suppose all you could say it's possible in the defense in the chaos that was going on, clearly very frightening. if he thought it was a man throwing things at his house, in the fog of what was happening he merely realized but certainly the way you conducted the interview with him it seemed to me like he was hiding something. what is the reaction from the community as to what has happened there? >>. >> reporter: well, our initial reaction was from the police on the scene. they told us off camera after they found the two bod gees of the two children, one of the officers told me, i want this guy to be charged with a crime who wouldn't let this woman and her two children inside the house. now, it made us wonder, could you be charged with such a crime and what we found out from legal experts, it's not a crime not to help. it's an ethical problem, a moral problem but apparently you can't be charged criminally for such action. >> well, it certainly will happen, he did reject that lady and she went on to lose her two children. it's a crime against humanity. gary, for now, t
a mistake. it's better to be overly defensive and just say, i am voting for him again. i try to give people, when i was at the rnc, the idea that maybe they could -- they should think about other alternatives. and you know, rather than just promoting a party line. and of course, a lot of people who are on the republican side, who voted for him last time, will probably have regrets. but if you have regrets, think about somebody else, somebody who offers something else, like a business background. governor romney is a great business background. he is extremely well educated. he has several degrees from harvard, including, you know, business and including a law degree. he is just a perfect guy for the job. and i think along with paul ryan, you have a great team that is out there, ready to i think they can correct a lot of the problems we have had... i don't know. i just eye think it's kind of -- i hate to get too sim police --icismalistic. i have nothing against this fella that's in. vinothing against any of the people on the staff. i do -- i find -- in myself, feeling very resentful about the
that with this announcement that obama, president obama has asked the defense department to free up some extra fuel, you mentioned it already, upwards of 24 million gallons to get more of it out here and transported more easily so that it can get out faster to the gas stations that do have power. >> yeah. it's a hell of a struggle. susan, thank you very much indeed. >>> joining me now from columbus, ohio, is general wesley clark, an obama supporter, former nato supreme allied commander. general, welcome back. >> thank you, piers. >> all the action now is heading to ohio. almost everyone who is anyone is down there, including your good self. the polls are very, very tight, showing very marginal lead for the president in most of the ones i've seen but with the margin of difference, you could almost say it's a tie. how are you seeing it down there on the ground? >> well, there's a lot of emotion, there's just thousands of volunteers out here. there's a ground game. we feel very good about the ground game, by the way. our volunteers are charged up. we've been working this for three and a half years. we knew
. this is a wide, barreling, lumbering, defensive lineman where that was a sprinter with a smaller body and a faster wind speed. this big storm is now making wind speeds of 81 miles per hour out near martha's vineyard, 76 in long island sound. and making landfall literally hundreds of miles from there. a typical storm would only have the core of the energy, a core of the maximum winds very close to the eye. that's the biggest trouble with this is that the widespread damage -- typically if something happens in new jersey to the power lines, they'll call vermont and say, send your power company down here to get our lines back up and we'll come up to your state when you need the help. that's the problem. there are going to be 14 states with hundreds of thousands of power lines down. the mutual aid is going to be tough to come by in this area. they're going farther and farther away to get the mutual aid. the problem is it takes longer and longer for those bucket trucks to get there. i believe this storm will come onshore somewhere between cape may, wildwood, atlantic city. the eye is not re
is falling, we're losing everywhere, we need to play a lot of defense, but rather, you know, they can't win ohio, so they're looking for another place. so we've got enough money to make sure that nothing goes wrong. the president's not going to win these battleground states by the same margins he won last time. there's some natural tightening. most of these states elected republican governors two years ago. >> two years ago. >> and so the president would be happy winning these states by two or three points. >> michigan, 2 1/2 points. this is one of these states that we republicans stopped expecting to win when ronald reagan retired. you usually put it in the pennsylvania category. do you believe mitt romney's within the margin of error in michigan? >> i tend to think -- i tend to give the benefit of the doubt to good polls. >> that's a good poll. >> that is a fine poll. i'm interested to see when governor romney or congressman ryan makes a trip to michigan. and that will tell you that they actually believe that there's a chance of winning michigan. as of right now, i think ann romney's been
that we needed to defend u.s. interest? if not, why? was it because of all these defense cuts? secondly if we had them why didn't we use them? because they were there and available. and the third one is why are we having this massive attempt to try to cover this up, beginning with this fictitious argument about these mobs and these protests against a video. and now we are looking at not even interviewing a key witness that could shed a lot of light on this investigation. bill: let me come back to that point, because the other bit of information that jennifer griffin was reporting last night from the pentagon, from her post at the pentagon is that there were at least two drones over this area while the attack was in progress, one arrived about an hour into it, was running low on fuel. that was replaced by one that fl flew in from italy. neither was armed. what do you make that of? >> well, bill, two things. first of all, we now know that the white house instantaneously knew who was happening in this particular situation. we are told that the president said that the military should do eve
as to what the president, the vice president, and the secretary of defense were doing at around 5:00 o'clock on september 11 in terms of ordering or not ordering aid for the four people who eventually died in benghazi on that day. and so we've seen now pictures of president obama in the situation room for sandy for the monster storm, but a lot of people, including me from weeks ago, are saying, well, where are the photo attention of the benghazi situation room? how long president there? what did he do? did he watch it in real time? we know that a drone was above. what was the decision making on that evening? >> gretchen: the response would be while the investigation is ongoing, but the -- not that that is suitable. but the interesting thing is they immediately put out the photo of the situation room after the osama bin laden killing. and many thought that would be highly classified. so that doesn't pass the mustard. >> peter: or they're embarrassed by it and don't want to discuss it, which i believe at this point. >> steve: the crazy thing is not only was there photo after bin laden wa
. our whole government defense relies on the big board. stanley kubrick directed this and it has to be number one. there are no hanging chads in my number one because this is such a sharp, sharp joke about what happens when the government has to assemble and do something really quickly. now, you and i both know we're not exactly engineered for that. so in dr. strangelove, a general decides he's going to drop the bomb on russia, which is a huge problem. so peter sellers in this movie playing numerous roles as he always does, he has to kind of coral all of these people in the government and try to stop this, the crazy war that's going to happen just randomly on one day. and this movie just keeps getting better with age because, you know, lines never stop being funny, as our world gets more and more ridiculous in real life. like george c. scott and the russian ambassador are fighting and peter sellers has to break it up by saying, you can't fight in here. this is the war room. >> i love it. >> and it's a classic. 1964. you are reaching back. not to confuse it with "dr. no." you star
's in a defensive crouch waiting for the election and that's really the bigger story in the economy. is the number of people who are waiting to see if impact change is really going to come to america. >> three things. first of all, thank you very much for your kind words. they mean a lot to us here in the tristate area. number two, on the subject of momentum, there are just as many democrats as republicans right now claiming that they have the momentum, they're playing to a lot of these swing state polls, including recent ones from cnn which show the president with consistent leads in many of the swing states. we'll leave that there, though. the third thing at cnn, we're lucky enough to have some brand-new op-eds written by both candidates. we just posted them on our website, cnn.com. we're the only ones who have these. let me read you a couple of excerpts. both candidates are talking about bipartisanship. first from president obama. he says when hardship hits, america is at its best. the petty differences that consume us in normal times quickly melt away. there are no democrats, or republicans, d
